2017 CRUISING PLAN

*UPDATED JUNE 26*

WE HAVE A PLAN! It’s always good to have a plan. As always, with us this plan is subject to change and subject to the weather. Remember, we’re retired, not on a set schedule, and don’t have to travel in bad weather.  As cruisers say, “written in sand at low tide”.  We don’t have dates, nor do we know how long we’ll be at a stop. We figure that out as we go. It’s how we roll.

All that said, , here is our float plan, in order, and most of these are planned anchorages with a few marinas thrown in:

  • Petersburg down Wrangell Narrows (we bypassed Wrangell Narrows on the way here and took Rocky Pass instead)
  • Sokolof Island Cove, Sokolof Island
  • Madan Bay, Eastern Passage
  • Anan Bay, Bradfield Canal
  • Santa Aan Inlet, Seward Passage
  • Meyers Chuck, Meyers Island on Clarence Strait (mmmm, cinnamon rolls)
  • Behm Canal
    • Naha Bay, Revillagigedo Island
